I was interested in the rich visual information showing the contradictions and ambivalence of coming of age. The bedrooms of teenagers were in particular of such interest to Salinger because of their clashes of lingering childhood items with more recent and grown-up purchases. The past is squeezed together on the same shelf as the future. The temptation when someone is about to view, let alone shoot, your room is to clean and curate it, but Salinger asked her subjects to resist.
As a teenager, a bedroom is like a best friend. At the end of the day, good or bad, it is always there. But what is the best way to decorate the room? Would they prefer posters from their favorite movies and bands, or sport paraphernalia? Since teen rooms also tend to be the messiest, helping to keep things organized is also a concern.
Flashes of bright coral will make for an energetic bedroom — it might help the girl who lives in it get out of bed faster in the morning, but then again… The hot coral contrasts with the pristine white walls to add a fresh hit to the overall look. There is something about a blush pink wall that will hold endless appeal, whether your teen is 14 or If your teen already had a pink room from when they were younger give it an elegant update with a mirror gallery wall and luxurious bedding in different shades of pink and purple. A white ladder shelf is a great way to add storage to a small space where they can display there books and treasures. Continue the theme throughout the room by adding in some stylish storage with some old fashion suitcases as a bedside table.
With a heavy school load and an even busier social schedule, teens have a lot on their plate. Creating a safe, stress-free haven where your teenage son or daughter can knock out their to-do list and spend time with their friends is a great way to help keep them on track, but designing a space that is both practical and stylish can be harder than it looks. Need a little inspiration? A string of twinkling accent lights adds a warm and glowy ambiance while doubling as a place to pin up pictures, postcards and other treasures in this modern pink and grey teen room seen of Arch-Zine.
